Banned Communist Party of India-Maoist guerrillas on Thursday shot dead six persons of a rival naxalite outfit in Bihar's Rohtas district.
"Six members of the Sashastra People's Morcha, a naxalite outfit mostly active in Jharkhand, were shot dead in Tardih forest in Rohtas," AIG (operations) S K Bharadwaj told PTI.
The victims, involved in armed resistance against the CPI-Maoist, were renegade members of the organisation, Bharadwaj said.
Those killed were from Barachatti and Mohanpur areas of Gaya district, close to Jharkhand border, he said. Bharadwaj denied that those killed were police informers.
